Since today is Labor Day, I thought I’d share a really great tip sure to make any cocktails you might be whipping up even more festive… h/t Alicia Cooper!

Who knew that the key to making those picture perfect clear ice cubes was boiling water?!?! Simply boil water for 5-10 minutes, let it cool, fill the tray and freeze!

If you decide to give this tip a try, here are some ideas for items to freeze inside your crystal clear cubes: raspberries, blueberries, strawberries, bananas, tiny plastic flags, small flowers, pineapple, cucumber, kiwi, lemon, lime, fig, rosemary, sage, mint, basil, lavender, honey, the sky is the limit! Just make sure your guests don’t choke on anything ; )
